CHICAGO-Houston-based industrial private equity firm Trident Equity Partners LLC is merging into locally-based Brennan Investment Group, a firm that former First Industrial Realty Trust president and CEO Mike Brennan started in October 2009. The principals at Trident will operate under the Brennan name and will focus their efforts in the major markets of Texas, Arizona and Colorado.

Brennan said in a statement that his strategy, both nationally and in Texas, is to acquire a portfolio of stable, well-leased assets along with distressed or value-added properties that will provide both a current yield as well as significant potential for capital appreciation over a two- to five-year period. Assets will include dock high warehouses, manufacturing buildings and grade-level service center buildings primarily of tiltwall construction, he said. The company focuses primarily on properties in the markets of Chicago, central Florida, northern New Jersey, southern California, Texas and Washington, DC.
